Neurosculpting: A Conversation with Lisa Wimberger, Part 1 (122)

We have a special guest today: Lisa Wimberger. Lisa is the creator of Neurosculpting, which is a self-directed neuroplasticity protocol. Specifically, it is a mental training process that quiets our fight-or-flight center and activates our prefrontal cortex, which is the mind’s seat of our compassion and empathy. Needless to say, we had a lot to talk about. In fact, We so many shared passions and inquiries in common with Lisa that we are airing this conversation as a 2-parter. Stay tuned next week. 

In this episode we are talking about: 

  • How meditation and spiritual paths can be used to dissociate further into a freeze pattern of the nervous system.

  • Lisa’s extreme experience of a nervous system caught in freeze, and how recovering from this adaptation is different than someone recovering from flight or fight patterns. 

  • Why going from freeze to “bliss” is too big a step. 

  • How to consciously choose when we need to be in our limbic nervous systems versus when we can move to a different state.

  • How the stories we tell about our lives (internally to ourselves) are built on the foundation of what information our nervous system’s received when we were very young.
